The genetic disruption of specific cell processes crucial to brain development was linked to disease risk in a wide range of mental health disorders including schizophrenia.
This webinar will provide an opportunity for diverse stakeholders, including school administrators, researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and funders, to learn about new and innovative practices in school-based suicide prevention.
The post Memory is a big part of the sense of touch appeared first on The BRAIN Initiative.
The post UCI-led team first to discover new neural circuits that regulate spatial learning and memory in the brain’s hippocampal formation appeared first on The BRAIN Initiative.
Researchers propose forgetting memories or things we have learned may be a functional feature in the brain and actually an additional form of learning.
Study reveals how the body produces different health-promoting signaling molecules in an organ-specific manner following exercise at different points during the day.
Heart disease that causes brain dysfunction can lead to the development of Alzheimer’s disease and triples the amount of amyloid-beta in the brain.
Researchers have developed a new method that vastly improves the imaging of the structures of neural connections using standard confocal microscopes.
Eating a handful of dried goji berries five times a week may help delay or even prevent the onset of age-related macular degeneration. Over a 90 day period, those who ate goji berries had an increase in protective pigments in their eyes.
The risk of developing mutliple sclerosis increases 32 fold following Epstein-Barr virus infection.
Proteins belonging to the TAM family receptors may be a new biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease. The elevated inflammatory markers are conspicuous, even before the onset of dementia.
A new computational model found decisions people are most likely to feel right about are a result of the attentional effort to consciously weigh up different options.
Deep, uninterrupted sleep can help boost learning names and faces, a new study reports.
Study reports play-based learning may positively impact a young child’s acquisition of math skills compared to direct teaching.
Spending time in nature helps reduce negative feelings about body image and anxiety.
Direct transmission of BPA from a pregnant woman to her child via the placenta may have a negative impact on fetal brain development, researchers report.
A study of fruit flies reveals how the insects retain neural circuits for certain motor functions while their edge on other functions declines as a result of aging.
The workshop will cover mechanistic understanding of psychoplastogens, discuss what settings are needed for a therapeutic effect, and the necessity and nature of concomitant psychotherapies.
Researchers found alterations in different parts of the brain in males and females with severe depression. The findings also reveal a specific biomarker for depression in blood samples of women.
Infection, inflammation, and metabolic disorders early in life could increase the chances of developing depression and psychosis during adulthood.
